Robert Sherriff— NOBODY’S HOME – True story – Sex abuse and domestic abuse.
Robert Sherriff was part of the stolen generation a child in 1961. Ward of the State of South Australia 1961. What I write will be enjoyed by young and old. I run classes to help people who want to write.
Part Indigenous on my mother’s side. As a child, I suffered from domestic abuse and sexual abuse. In State Care of the South Australian Government. I am on the old age pension.
Roberts fathers’ side of the family can be traced back to Scotland.
My story I compare with the song Amazing Grace with God by my side.
Stories are really powerful. When shared, they have the ability to heal, strengthen, and inspire.
They base the stories that people share on what people have gathered from life experiences, and the most powerful forms of stories are stories of resilience. The word resilience itself is a demonstration of the ability of a person who bends in situations but does not break.
